Gerry’s Story



Gerry Brown

East Lambton Elementary School
Watford, Ontario

Students and parents at East Lambton Elementary School, and St. Peter Canisius in Watford, Ontario nominated Gerry Brown because he is an integral part of their community. For 30 years Gerry has been guarding generations of children at a busy highway that runs through the town.

Gerry is also known for his involvement with community events, as a member of the Watford Legion he makes sure to help educate students on the meaning and importance of Remembrance Day. He is also seen helping out members of the community by shoveling sidewalks in the winter.

In this small town of 1700, it is special to have someone looking out for its young people. Thanks to the Gerry’s watchful eye, that is possible.
